Days 3-5 Pucon

ACCOM: Hostel - 3
Days 6-7 San Martin de los Andes
Journey over the Andes and into Argentina. Drop by the country's picturesque Lake District for excellent skiing or trekking possibilities, weather permitting.
ACCOM: Hotel - 2
Days 8-10 Bariloche
Savour the fine dining opportunities, artisan chocolate shops and quaint, chalet-style wooden architecture of Bariloche. With plenty of ski runs open during winter and stunning lakes sure to entice swimmers over summer, you could well be forgiven for thinking you were in Northern Italy.
ACCOM: Hotel - 2, Overnight bus - 1
Days 11-13 Buenos Aires
Fiery Latin passion, European elegance and superb cuisine combine to make Buenos Aires one of the world's most enthralling cities. Nibble on alfajores, wander San Telmo's cobblestone streets, talk football with Portenos in a cafe or get a history lesson at the quirky Museo Evita. The hippest spot in town is Palermo's Plaza Serrano, so why not head out in the evening for a tango with the locals. There are so many things to see and do in Buenos Aires, it's simply a matter of trying to fit them all in.

Excellent trip but weather and timing impacted total enjoyment of trip

2014 Chile & Argentina Discovery, April 2014
This was the best tour I have ever been to, largely because of our tour guide Martin. He went above and beyond what I would expect a tour guide to do, making us his friends and showing us an experience of the two countries we would never have seen without him.
